Ok let me paint this picture for you . I am in the "learning room" at my desk. I have all sorts of crafts on my desk that I am prepairing for the girls. These crafts include an airplane craft , ape craft ( both bought at dollar tree), Apple craft ( that I made with construction paper) a valentine Angle (http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2011/02/here-is-a-valentine-angel-from-me-to-you.html  ) and a valentine alligator craft ( http://www.skiptomylou.org/2008/02/06/id-snap-at-the-chance-to-be-your-valentine/  ). When in walks my 5 yo and looks around . She says to me " I know what you are doing! You are not sneeky!" So I say "Oh really , what am I doing?"  and then she answers " You have all this stuff that starts with A you are tring to see if I know things that start with A"  LOL !!!! Yup kid ya got me !!!!!! I cracked up . I was also very proud becuase we have had problems with letter recognition and today she just came in and nailed it !

LOL ! well Fridays are our review/test/craft days. I have started trying to "test" her by doing crafts of some sort. Like how I did today I had a bunch of things that started with the letter A and then a few that did not and she was only allowed to do the ones that started with A . Needless to say she passed LOL !!!

Thank you ! I had been thinking about different ways to "test" her with out putting pressure on her. I know some say not to push or test kids but I really needed to know what she was learning and what she was not. We are not doing grades this year ( she is not old enough for public school so we are using this as a "Free" year to get into a good homeschool groove so to speak) But like I said I really did not want to put pressure on here so I try to make it fun .
